Optional Garnish

  • mint leaves
  • lime slices

Notes

Ginger Beer: I typically use Fever Tree Ginger Beer, but you can use any brand that you prefer. You can also use ginger ale, but it will be a little sweeter and have a slightly different flavor. 
Rum: See the list of rums recommended above.
Use fresh lime juice. Fresh lime juice has a much better flavor than bottled lime juice. 
Use good quality rum. I listed a few popular and highly rated rums above. My favorite is Flor de Cana. 
Add crushed ice right before serving. This prevents the rum moscow mule from getting watered down.
